Fednav takes delivery of new laker

FEDERAL MONTREAL is Fednav’s newest Great Lakes-suitable handysize vessel. The ceremony was attended by senior management from both Fednav and the shipyard.


The 34,500dwt international ice-class bulk carrier is flagged in the Marshall Islands. Built to trade in the St Lawrence River and the Great Lakes, the vessel is certified by DNV GL and is equipped with the latest environmental protection technology. Although Fednav is based in Montreal, the new ship is the company’s first ever to bear the name of any city.


"Montreal is Canada’s transportation capital," said Paul Pathy, President and CEO of Fednav. "By naming this new vessel FEDERAL MONTREAL, we wanted to communicate our commitment to our city, the city of our headquarters and my hometown.


"This dedication to our city is a testimony of our commitment to the economy of Montreal and the whole country and to our customers, employees, and partners, showing that Fednav will always deliver a higher standard.”


Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Fednav Limited operates a fleet of close to 125 bulk carriers trading worldwide, of which 65 are owned. The fleet includes three ice-breaking cargo ships that service the Arctic year round.


FEDERAL MONTREAL is one of six DNV GL-classed newbuild bulk carriers contracted to Oshima Shipbuilding as part of Fednav’s vessel replacement programme. The ship is designed to emit 30% fewer greenhouse gases than similar vessels and is equipped with an Optimarin ultraviolet ballast water treatment system. The vessel is also the 50th Fednav vessel classed by DNV GL.
